I often struggle with what to write in this blog. Do I just show photos such as these fine art rose photos making it more of a visual experience? Or should I try to always include something interesting that somehow relates to the photos, perhaps tossing in a little wit here and there? In reality, I will probably move between all three, just don’t expect me to write any original poetry. I gave that up with my last scholastic assignment on the topic. I enjoy writing, but a large part of writing is maintaining the discipline and setting aside the uninterrupted time to actually do it. :)
I’m working on that…really.
Lately I have been enjoying a few of my rose photos. The one below was taken a few years ago. I decided I liked the idea of rain drops on rose petals for a photo and so I stuck the bouquet of roses my husband had given me outside just as it began to rain. Only it didn’t just rain…it POURED. I love the unexpected reflection that resulted from the deluge. A few days ago I pulled this photo out of my archives, tweaked the editing and changed the crop, and here is the result. I love being able to revisit older photos and re-invision them.
The two photos below were taken with this year’s Valentine’s Day roses that my husband (and favorite person on the planet) gave me. I love receiving flowers because they are like Disneyland held in my hand. I love the colors, textures, lines…everything. They make me happy. As I was selecting images for the show my husband and I currently have installed in the Sacramento area, I ran across this pair of images. I really liked how they complemented each other side by side and decided to display them in this manner.
The photo below I just had printed for the first time in a 20×30 for the show and I adore it, so much so that I begged my chief photo-hanger extraordinaire (my husband) to hang it immediately after it was back from the framer so I could enjoy it for the two weeks before I had to take it to the show.
I print all of my photos on metallic paper for the image crispness and rich colors it yields. The results are simply fantastic for these images!
